That which we manifest is strictly based on who we are and on what we want. Once we can clearly identify both, we can employ the creation process more profoundly. When we don’t seem to be successfully manifesting that which we desire, or when we find ourselves manifesting obstacles that prevent us from doing so, it can be due to not understanding what we want. This can stem from not understanding who we are.
We may have set an intention on what we want to attract into our lives yet we seem to continue to fall short of attaining it. It might be possible that the intention we set is based on what we think we are supposed to want rather than what we actually want. This is very prevalent in our society as we are often bombarded by media and entertainment venues that tell us what we should embrace as the definition of success. We are presented with the notion that wealth and fame are the pinnacles of achievement. Fame may be counter to those of us who cherish solitude and privacy. Perhaps we might place great value in humility but we perceive wealth as requiring a great level of pride in order to attract it.
That which we fear quite often can mask and eclipse our desires. We somehow continue to manifest the things we believe we don’t want. We don’t actually want these troubles, so how can we be manifesting them, we will ask ourselves. While the principles of manifestation often state that we will manifest that to which we give focus, even the things which we do not want, it is not a simple matter to simply not focus on our fears or worries.
The good news is we don’t necessarily have to play the game of futility where we tell ourselves not to think of an elephant, only to find the vision of an elephant front and center in our mind. Our fears are a direct result of our desires. Perhaps we might fear for the loss of our property or personal safety at the possibility of a home intrusion. Yet that fear stems from our desire for comfort, security, and peace of mind. When we take it a step further and look at who we believe ourselves to be, we might find that we believe we are targets for people who want to take from us. No matter how secure we wish to feel, if we lack the self-image of safety and security, this self-perception will trump our desire every time.
The most direct route to understanding what we truly want and to seeing who we truly are is to find the pearl of what we love. That which we love contains the strongest manifesting force. Our greatest fears are born of the things we love the most. In fact, when we allow ourselves to be moved and motivated by what we love, the effort required to move in that direction lessens considerably. Our passion can move us over, around, and through any obstacle due to the power it provides in motivating us to excel. Fear asks us to stop in our tracks and remove the obstacle, which completely kills our momentum and makes us static. Love provides us with the inexhaustible energy to overpower any obstacle in our path, no matter the size or the threat it appears to present.
